Family Dining at Intu Metrocentre Qube

Its no secret that my love for the Metro Centre is a recently new thing, I've always thought I didn't love it until a recent visit when I discovered it is totes amazebonks! So  now I'm  happy to go along whenever possible, obviously I jumped at the chance of sampling a selection of the best food the QUBE has to offer.

The QUBE which opened in 2009 is located in the platinum mall and houses Odeon cinema alongside so much  choice for food and drink that you could probably eat out every day for a year and have something different each time. The QUBE was extended this spring with nine new restaurants Ask, Barburrito, Bella Italia, Coast to Coast, Chiquito, Five Guys, Subway, TGI Fridays and Thaikhun All of the restaurants in the QUBE  have awesome menus with something for everyone.

We arrived to find a 10 ft chef welcoming us to an evening set to tantalise our taste buds and then we proceeded to work our way through a taster menu....


Rainbows and Dreams Mocktail from Chiquto 

Prosecco for Mammy and Daddy

We tried food from our favourites, Wagamama and Chiquito but also tried some new places like Yo Sushi and Thaikum both of which I really enjoyed. The kids loved their milkshakes and mocktails and we had such fun meeting the Metrognomes (who you can see throughout the Summer Holiday)


I'm amazed by the choice and would highly recommend a trip up to test out some of the eateries on offer, we've recently been back and we popped into Coast to Coast for drinks and then Wagamama for food, but seriously the choice is so vast you couldn't go hungry

Thumbs up from Mr Monkeyfeet (high praise indeed)
